    Has anyone ever managed to haggle a discount from DFS?

    I'm very close to buying a new sofa from DFS. However, I was informed by a DFS member of staff that their prices are non-negotiable because they offer interest free purchases. Is that just a sales line? If it's true I can accept it, but if there's a chance of a discount, I'll go for it!

    I forgot to say that I'll be paying monthly DD - I can't afford to pay up front in full.

    No harm in trying. You'll find out for sure then.

    mmmmm, that's good to know. I think I'll give it a go.

    Take a tape measure with you, they lie about sizes.

    ha ha, I waited 3 months for mine to be delivered and only though of measuring to see if they'd fit the day before they came :w00t::oops:

    It is also illegal to offer a different price between cash or finance, so go in letting them think you are a cash buyer and negotiate a deal. Then as you are about to sign up say that you will use their finance. No doubt they will say that they can't do it for that figure because of the finance, so make sure you tell them it's illegal to offer different prices for cas and finance.

    Make sure also, that you take a witness with you to hear their conversation, and if needs be, ask for their sales manager.

    Worked for me about 7 yrs ago. Got £200 off and 0%.
